MONITOR RESOLUTION: I have a LG 22" 1080p (1920x1080 res?)
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I feel this is the best build possible for the money. Please correct me if I am wrong. Would a 5870 be better than a 470? I heard the 470's preform better. Ive considered doing a 6 core amd build as well instead of intel.
That 470 is great at that price. If you don't plan to SLI at some point then a 650 watt PSU may do as well, but the 750 is combo'd with the case so that's only like 5$ saved, not worth it to step down IMO.
The XFX is actually 15% off +20$ mir, making it 90.5$. You'd then have to buy uncombo'd ram (in which case I'd get the eco series version of that ram for 1$ more), which ends up totalling 189$-168 or 21$ more (assuming I didn't just epicfail so basic arithmetic).
The XFX is modular and silver-efficiency, and you'd get eco series ram out of it, so it's not a bad trade. You'd likely recoup at least that much over the life of the build in energy savings, as well as have a modular PSU and the eco ram.
